A wonderful movie which combines all the necessary ingredients
The film sets off by showing how a father and his teenage son Lars struggle to start a new life in the east German province. In calm paces the film extends. It finds beautiful images in the small world involved, the cinematography is inventive and the repeated takes of the same beautiful spots with the different use of light and weather underline the development of the story. Lars meets Marie, the teenage daughter of the local pub owner. Gently they get to know each other while their parents and Co. struggle with their own screwed lives. Again, the pace is calm, but slowly but surely - accompanied by a funny, grotesque humour with many laughs in the audience - the plot culminates in a Christmas dinner that you will be happy not to have to attend. A wonderful movie which combines all the necessary ingredients. Very good rather understated acting, visual beauty, interesting characters, good storytelling.
